In Russia, waving a Gay Pride Rainbow Flag gets you arrested.

Wearing a World Cup Team Jersey? Not so much!

All it takes is a little coordination and teamwork to make a completely innocent (not) statement.

Take that, oppressors.

Also, kudos to the betting site @PaddyPower, who donated to LGBT charities every time the Russian team (now eliminated) scored a goal.

Take that, Putin.

Can you help us out?
